Minnie Driver

The Phantom of the Opera

22 Dec, 2004

Driver plays Carlotta, the diva of the Paris Opera House, in this musical drama directed by Joel Schumacher from the stage musical by Andrew Lloyd Webber. Carlotta’s place as diva is usurped by Christine (Emmy Rossum), a chorus singer, after the Phantom (Gerard Butler) paves the way for his protege. Co-starring Patrick Wilson and Miranda Richardson.

It was very fun. Very weird to get rid of all the filters, all the behavioral stuff, to start behaving like Carlotta. It was good. It was what Joel wanted.
